about several things. first of all, all concerning president mohammed morsi and this growing perception that he is making himself too powerful. cnn's reza sayah is in cairo. >> opposition factions back protesting against mohammed morrissey for nearly two weeks. most of the protests have been limited to tahrir square, but they're now going to the source of their anger, president morrissey, and his presidential palace. >> why come here? >> because it's -- we got fed up. >> he doesn't respect us. he don't want to listen to our demands. >> reporter: what's your message to him by coming out here? >> that what he is doing is completely unfair. this is not what we asked for. it's complete dictatorship. >> reporter: at one point there were tense moments when protests clashed with police and broke through a police barrier, but things called down pretty quickly. the president in no danger. he left at some point. the protests continue empassioned but peaceful. there you hear the chants of dictator, dictator. like much of egypt, most of these people are muslims, but you'll also find the moderates,
the presidential palace. they are pro tess testing against president morsi's unrestricted powers and draft constitution adopted by hisal allies. >> the great expectations in britain this morning, expectations tempered with caution. prince william returned to king edward vi to be at the bedside of his hospital who is less than 12 weeks pregnant and treated for morning sickness. while her condition is guarded it's created worldwide excitement. fueling speculation the couple might be having twins. royal watcher neil shawn joins us live from london with more on this. this type of morning sickness is very serious, only occurs in 2% of pregnant women but it does spark speculation she could be carrying twins. why? >> oh, thomas, i think that's a big speculation. that started this morning, actually, very early on in our news services over here. there's no word of that, of course, from royal palace or royal insiders or anything like that. the more worrying aspect is the fact that it's acute morning sickness as you mentioned is not necessarily too rare, but when you look at somebody of kate's shall
president morsi who's expected to appear on egyptian television, and it could be his appearance as soon as this hour. steve harrigan's in cairo with more. steve? >> reporter: jenna, the protesters are out behind me for the or seventh night in a row, and as you mentioned, part of the u.s. embassy -- the part that deals with the public and visitor -- was shut down today not because the embassy was targeted, but really because of fears of peripheral violence. this whole section of downtown cairo has seen large street protests for the last several days, police and protesters exchanging rocks and tear gas. two buildings on this street were set on fire overnight. those blazes are now out. we are expecting to see egypt's president in a taped television address later today. he'll likely be introducing a new constitution that's being voted on by the assembly now. that constitution can either calm things down here or enflame things further. it really depends what it has to say about the role of islam in people's life in egypt. either way, we're likely to see more street protests. both those who s

government that comes into power to more or less stick to the plan morsi set out. on the other hand, there's always spain, the worries that with 25% unemployment, that you would see the default rate particularly on residential mortgages shoot up, it's 3% now, which is pretty amazing given the struggles within the economy, but we think it will go up somewhat, but really not any more than people have already priced in. >> and then ten year yields, 5.24%. at the moment, relatively speaking, pretty comfortable. >> maybe a little bit too comfortable and we certainly don't want to get complace complacent.yields are where they were say in march of this year and then subsequently they shot up to 7.5%. we know with the draghi put that that won't happen, but we don't want to think that there is only one way -- >> yesterday said, look, sort of the idea of the risk on phrase, certainly for -- he was looking at it from credit markets, but would stay on until the middle >> i think lite bit more selective. it won't be just everything goes up now. we have to start thinking about companies and sectors agai
of them in egypt, protesting against president morsi's decrees and this draft constitution that appears to be going full speed ahead on a national referendum on december 15th, the road seems to be clear for egypt to vote on this constitutional referendum. of course, these option factions believe they've been sidelined, squeezed out of the process for which it was drafted. >> reza, we're going to let you go. thank you very much. >>> back to iran for a second. this is not the first time that iran has gone public with the capture of a u.s. drone. last year it says it shot down a stealth used by the cia. we'll talk to our security expert fran townsend about all of this. >>> hours leading up to a kansas city chiefs player's murder/suicide. jovan belcher was out partying with another woman the night before he shot his girlfriend, kasandra perkins. belcher and oert woman became separated. he wound up returning to her apartment complex. when he couldn't find her, he crashed at her neighbor's house and the neighbor says belcher was drunk. he returned home the next morning, several hours after pe

. at the same time we see morsi play an important role between negotiating between israel and hamas and being supported by the united states. this is why i do not have a fear of + about the role of the muslim brotherhood. even though sometimes the fear we have right now -- we can call them exactly like the christian democrats and in europe. they need some time to be more able -- to be able -- they are very successful on the side of the opposition. right now in sight of the government, there is a tremendous responsibility. we have seen that from the parliamentarian elections were the muslim brothers in egypt but the majority. until the results, they lost 4 million of votes. this is why we have a responsibility in the united states to support democratic institutions not allowing any ideological block to hijack the revolution or the institutions. at the same time, not taking sides. that will have a negative impact. it is an important asset to combat the jihad tests or the extremists. -- jihadists or the extremists. the muslim brothers in tunisia .ccused this is why we have to a differentiates be
